MHT believes women are the leaders in driving progress toward more sustainable and gender-inclusive cities. We help develop women’s grassroots institutions and build their knowledge and capacities to engage with decision-making on issues that concern their communities and cities. We also bring technical expertise in construction, technology, and urban governance to help design and deliver pro-poor services and programs. The socio-technical nature of our organization makes us uniquely positioned to act as a bridge between grassroots and mainstream public and private sector institutions and advance action on responsible urban development.
